Anatomy of Air: Air Max 95

This year marks 20 years since the iconic Nike Air Max 95 was released, which quickly became a fashion symbol of the 90’s.

A History

This classic Nike trainer took sneaker design to a new level as the designer Sergio Lozano took the human body as his source of inspiration. The silhouette used elements of the body as its template for the make up of the shoe. The midsole represented the spine, the graduated panels were the muscle fibres, the loop holes and straps were the ribs and the mesh was the skin.

The OG colourway was presented in black, neon yellow and white and featured minimal Nike branding, with a small Swoosh on the outer heel. The neon yellow emphasised the 3 visible AirSole units and the technical appearance of the shoe gave the impression of a serious running trainer.

Now in | adidas Originals x Pharrell “Supershell” Artist Series

The adidas Originals x Pharrell collaboration is back with his new “Supershell” collection.

After the success of the Supercolor pack, this new collection is adding another unique spin to the much loved Superstar silhouette.

blog 1

A collaboration within a collaboration, Pharrell has worked with a series of artists to create this pack and each of them have reworked the shell toe according to their style. Within this artist series there are 2 collections, the Artwork that features a print design and the Sculpted that features a 3D embossed toe.

OFFSPRING will be stocking the designs by Todd James, Mr. and Pharrell himself all designed on the all black or all white mono Superstar.

blog

Todd James is a celebrated New York artist whose paintings and installations have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, including both the 2001 and 2015 Venice Biennales. His immediate and insistent works draw influence from Saturday morning cartoons, subway graffiti, American popular culture and world events.
“Todd James is a guy who’s always marched to the beat of his own drum. He’s just
always created these super interesting paintings and drawings. He brings you into his
own world. Sometimes certain things have an effect on you that you can’t really put
into words.”
-Pharrell Williams

blog

Mr. is a Japanese contemporary artist based in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. He works in a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, and video – though his works are all closely related in aesthetics, style, and theme. Rendered in the anime style, the girls in his paintings incorporate the unique Japanese concept of ‘moe’ to depict a new form of beauty and refracted sexuality of the contemporary age. In 2014, he set his art to music by directing the unique music video for Pharrell Williams’s It Girl.
“Mr is a wizard. His mind and his work remind us all that there’s an inner child in all
of us. It’s interesting because when other people try to paint the same things it can
send off very different messages. But somehow, Mr. is a master of depicting
innocence, and I love that about his work. Mr., which really means
master.”
-Pharrell Williams

The collection will be available online and in-store from the 7th August 2015. There will be events on the weekend of launch in our OFFSPRING Camden, Commercial St. and Selfridges London stores, follow @offspringhq for updates.
